1879 Dodge Tioga arrow with a 440 big block Dustina Luna 4-15-17  
For the last few days I've had to constantly jump it. The batteries constantly dead. I thought it was the alternator, now I'm not so sure, this morning I went to go turn it on with the battery fully charged, and it doesn't make a sound, doesn't turn over, nothing.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

You didn't tell us if boosting it worked, important fact in the diagnostic process

As a guess you have not taken your battery to your local parts store and had it tested. 80% chance its toast and just tests as charged until you ask it to do something. If I am wrong charge it and leave it disconnected over night, if something external is killing it it will be charged, if its got an internal fault it will be dead.

From there your alternator could be bad and kill the battery, to check disconnect it over night.

But most likely if the battery is good is bad connections somewhere.

Last there is likely a device called a isolator, if it goes bad often a good start battery will try to charge bad house batteries or will supply the interior with power.

Good Luck
